33:00 The story to watch: Why multiple roads lead to Iran. 

  • Navy SEALS board a ship transporting Iranian weapons to the Houthis; two operators go missing at sea.
  • Hamas: a designated terrorist group backed by Iran launched a terrorist attack in Israel, a key American ally.
  • Hezbollah: terrorist group backed by Iran fires on Israel, responding to Israel's war with Hamas.
  • Houthi: formerly designated terrorist group backed by Iran, harrasses ships in solidarity with Hamas.
  • Iranian-backed militia attack U.S. positions in Iraq, Syria more than 130 times in the last several weeks after Hamas launched a terrorist attack.

Some have warned of a regional conflict – but has one already started? 

How could this story change the image of American leadership for U.S. voters?
